Heilbronn, Germany : On the 11th day, Tuesday 2nd October, all members of the delegation together with their host families gathered for prayer and reflection. It was held on a small hilltop just outside Heilbronn where a Catholic Church, dedicated to St. Michael is sited. This place is known as Michaelsberg over looking a theme park, commanding a clear view of the city of Heilbronn on the north and Stuttgart on the south.
The reflection day, themed 'Guardian Angels' began with the morning prayer led by the Rev. Jorg Kohler-Schunk. About 50 faithful were present and an open sharing was then held. Three from the hosts and two from Sabah shared on their experiences with God. Then in groups of 10 we shared on living the life as Christians in the various parishes. It was an enriching experience making us realized the importance of moving forward to continue making His name known.
